Napa is beautiful

Loved Napa! Just a beautiful vineyard and we got to walk through it. Lovely views while tasting wine. Sonoma was fine. The second stop was very educational and we loved that. The first stop was not too nice of a place and the gentleman didn’t really explain anything…he did have three cute dogs though! Overall, I’d recommend. The driver was pretty good too!

Amazing day in Napa and Sonoma

Fantastic tour of wine country - very happy with the wineries selected, each one giving a unique experience. Lunch at Oxbow Market was amazing. Our tour operator, Joe, gave so much information on the history of the region on the drive into Napa and Sonoma. He kept us entertained and on time. Great tunes on the way home. Definitely recommend this tour company.

Hi Stephen. Really nice review. We appreciate the good words. Having a proper guide makes all the difference and we like to hear that our guests have a good time, but also leave the tour a little bit informed. We like Joe too!

Traveling Coach could have been better. Guide was good. However recommended. Will probably use again.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks for your input and we hope you enjoyed the tour. Our minibuses are less than five years old and we do our best to keep them comfortable and clean, so we are sorry if your found them otherwise. The focus on our tours are the wineries, the wine regions and an expertly guided tour in Napa/Sonoma. Please reach out to us again if you are in SF/Bay Area. Maybe you might consider a Private Tour, in which you can choose from our luxury fleet to have to yourself! Cheers.

Learned a lot from this trip. Tour guide is very friendly, the bus needs an upgrade though. The seats had no headrest, should have one for comfort and safety.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Catherine. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tour and learning is part of visiting wine country. The wineries we choose are very proud of their locations and their fruit and sharing their passions. Sorry about not having headrests. That is a novel suggestion. Best regards. Spor (GM)

Enjoyed the tour bus narrator. Roman was great. Not complex satisfied with the winery. Expected more if a tour and education and food like cheeses fruits etc. enjoyed the wine
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks Sabrina. We appreciate your observations about the wineries. Remember, we are still in a pandemic, so the "behind the scenes" aspect of touring a winery are just not there yet. On our Napa/Sonoma tour, for us to get to three wineries and a lunch 1.5 hours North of San Francisco and back, we are doing winery tastings, NOT tours. We love cheese and fruits, but that is usually not part of a tasting, as they affect flavors and aromas of the wine and these tours are all about the juice! We do hope you enjoyed getting to Napa and Sonoma and enjoyed the scenery as well as the experts at each winery.

A beautiful day in Napa and Sonoma
Jessica_L
, May 2022
My husband and I had an absolute blast on The Perfect Blend wine tour a couple of weeks ago! Our driver and host for the day, Dustin, was incredible. He was hilarious, knowledgable and fun from start to finish. The small bus (I believe there were about 12 or so other people on our tour) picked us up at a hotel in SF and we made a few photo stops along the way -- I was able to get the most incredible unobstructed photos of the Golden Gate Bridge thanks to Dustin's photo stop recommendation. Dustin kept us entertained on the drive to Napa and Sonoma and I learned a ton about the history of SF, the general area and wine along the way. We stopped at three wineries throughout the day -- each one different and unique with interesting stories and delicious wine. We also stopped for lunch at the Oxbow Public Market in Napa which had so many awesome food options. This tour is a fantastic option for those visiting SF without access to their own transportation to explore Napa and Sonoma. It was a relaxing, fun and beautiful day. I'd highly recommend it!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you Jessica. First, we appreciate your detailed review. Next, you nailed all the points of what we try and offer to our guests. Dustin is a real pro and he makes everyone feel involved--this is what real guides should do. Wine is serious business, but that doesn't mean it cannot be fun! So happy that you enjoyed the wineries, the photo-op stop, and Oxbow Market---truly a symbol for what a "food court" should be: farm-to-table, locally-made and lots of variety. Come back anytime and maybe we'll have you write our next brochure! Best, Spor

Ru Vango was the last wine farm that we visited, not only was it really beautiful but it was my favourite wine farm from the 3 visited during the tour. Out guide was Jeffery who was absolutely amazing. He made the journey to the wine farms and back great fun with his sense of humor and kept the group entertained throughout the day.

We appreciate your kind review and are glad you enjoyed Ru Vango - truly, a stylish, modern CA winery. Jeffrey really animates the experience and we are happy that he made your day in wine country special. Let us know when you return and we'll do it again!

Although the day was cloudy, the tour was full of sunshine and yes…wine! Jeffrey was a fabulous guide with a wealth of local knowledge as well as wine knowledge. We toured some wineries that probably are not on the usual tours but the experience was outstanding. The fellow tasters made the day a memorable one for sure. Nice to have met you all.

We appreciate your nice review, Wyatt. We do try to get our guests away from the large, crowded wineries. Truly, off the beaten path where small production, sustainability happens. Thanks!
